If we are free during the day or at night, we can spend more time with our little French shepherd dogs. They will feel more secure and belong.

Beauceron Breed History

The Beauceron, though not much known in other countries, is a very old purebred breed bred locally in France. Named after the French Beauce region. Other nicknames are French short-haired Shepherd, Beauce Shepherd, and Bas Rouge (meaning red socks, because the lower extremities of French wolfdogs are maroon). The Beauceron, named after the Beauce region, is said to have originated in Brie, and although they are very different in appearance, they share a common ancestor. The Beauceron was first described in 1587. It was in 1809 that a priest first described the difference between a French wolfhound and a brie in an article. In the late 19th century, farmers with cattle and sheep held a meeting and decided to name long-haired dogs brie and short-haired dogs Beauceron. In the late 19th century, Pole Morgan began to study the problem of discrimination between the two and established the identification standard for French wolfhounds. In 1922, under Morgan's leadership, the Beauceron Club was founded. The Beauceron standard has been revised six times in the last 100 years, the last revision being in 2001 and implemented on November 29 of that year. Beaucerons have been commonly bred in France since the 1960s, but have recently gained popularity abroad in many countries, including the United States. The main attraction is their appearance and personality. French writers even labeled him a "French gentleman". The Beauceron is a widely used breed that was once used for hunting wild boars and for a long time played three roles: herding dogs (cattle, sheep, etc.), guard dogs, and family guard dogs. In the two world wars in Europe, it was also used by the military to convey information, to move supplies, to detect mines, to help the wounded, and so on. Today they are still excellent military and police dogs, as well as family guard dogs and companion dogs.
